The rooms are very small. Hate the floor design. Room design is very tacky and so is the bed itself but the style is bright. The bathroom area could use some work and could be bigger. The bed was average but there was a amount of space.

The guy working the front desk was very friendly but this hotel is disgusting. I understand that this is a motel and not a five star hotel, but this place has no standards when it comes to cleanliness. The place wreaks of cigarettes and chemicals. When we checked in there were garbage bags in the stairwell because the garbage bin...

I checked into this Motel 6 and it didn't look all that upon entering but I needed a place to stay. The room was not even worth the money that I paid ($70 and change) on the weekends, in fact I should have asked for a refund and went and slept in my car!!! I pulled around back to park...

First impression. Immediately upon opening the door the room had an extremely strong chemical smell. We immediately asked for another room and was told there was none available and that it was the cleaner they use. We decided to try to tough it out. After about a half hour in the room and really finding it difficult to ignore the...

The place looks nice from outside. Just a few negatives and positive. The staff isnt welcoming at all they dont even greet you even thou they know you're staying there. Every time we walked in they wouldnt even say hi or look at us.. Kind of makes me think that anyone can walk in even if you arent staying there...

As the title suggests, you get what you pay for. It's a cheap motel, not a hotel. The place has been renovated since my last stay and is a big upgrade from what it used to be. The staff weren't anything special, I wouldn't say they were rude, but they weren't exactly nice either. I personally didn't have any issues...

Booked here for a night. Big mistake. The place has no security and is filthy. Bathroom had hair from previous occupants, bed cover was filthy and sheets looked like they had not been changed... Loud noises came from the next room with people arguing. Find another place at any cost.

OK I know its cheap....but this hotel is gross! I booked a night here to see chris cornell in downtown Albany. I had a 4 hour ride and was excited to get to the hotel and relax before the show. Entering the hotel the front desk staff had no idea what they were doing. They took about 15 min to...

Stayed one night passing thru and found a blue pill on the floor and the bathroom shower was broken. Bed was clean and so were the sheets. A bit too perfumy for my taste (like cheap perfume). I wouldn't stay here again. We had to open the door to let the air out. Front desk was nice however smelled like...
